Pia Pauro dress // Melissa ‘Aranha’ sandals

Every year when the summer heat gets crazy I like to escape from the city for a few days. This year I spent my a couple of days in the beautiful Manasi Bungalow at Lonavala (I’ll be writing more about my experience on Life etc. later this week).
This is what I wore on my 23rd birthday… I kept the look very simple featuring this Pia Pauro dress. I feel like it would have been slightly better suited to a beach but nothing could stop me from wearing it on my special day! You guys know I’m a sucker for clothing & accessories that match, so I paired the dress with my new favorite Jelly Sandals from Melissa. I was ecstatic when I heard that this iconic Brazialian brand is now in India & that you can order online! I love the throwback 90’s style (I think we all owned a pair of sandals like these for monsoons especially). They’re incredibly soft & yet very durable. The fact they smell of raspberries in an added bonus! Also, if you’d like to know how I achieve the beachy waves in this video (no heat) I’ll have a review / tutorial post up soon.
I made a little video of the outfit too, which you can watch below. Have you entered my Birthday Giveaway yet? It’s open internationally!
